Query: John P. SNOW and Susannah R. Smith of Greene County, GA had
children. Two of the children are reported to have been born in CLARKE
County, GA. The youngest child is reported to have been born in WALTON
County, GA. There is no information on where the first three children
were born. The BIRTH section of your WALTON COUNTY site shows a J. W.
SNOW with a birth year of 1823/1824 which would be correct for the
oldest child. My question is - "Where did these births come from? Is
there documentation for them. If someone submitted each of these entries
is there a way to determine who submitted the one for J. W. SNOW?"

I am hopping to fine a FAMILY HISTORY BIBLE bought at the Estate
sale of AUSTIN WEBB in WALTON county on November 21, 1883 by a J. P. ROCKMORE.
Am at a brickwall on greatgrandparents, Joseph Benjamin Whitehead
and Ola Adams. Have been searching in Dodge County for about a year and
discovered some notes I jotted down 30 years ago that states they were
from Winder, Ga. I live near Canada and am doing all my research on the
internet. Joseph and Ola were married about 1902-3, I have a copy of their
wedding photo, and they look to be in their early 20's, so I am guessing
their births in the late 1870-early "80's. I believe Joseph was a Junior,
and it is either him or his father that the Joseph B.Whitehead Boy's Club
in the Lakewood section of Atlanta is named in honor of. There seems to
be family lore that one of them has a formal portrait in Crawford Long
Hospital. Has anyone acess to the early Walton County marriage records,
or census reports for 1880 that might list them in their family homes?
I would be most grateful for any assistance. One last thing, in the mid
1970's I was contacted by a woman who was doing! a genealogical report
for her family and mine was an extention, or "branch" leading off a common
ancestor. She wanted to publish the report and was inquiring the interest
in the family to purchase copies, as she had to commit to a set number
to have it printed and bound. I never heard anymore from her, but would
me most interested if the following information would ring a bell in anyone's
memory. She was researching my Whitehead/Adams line, and I got the impression
she was of the Adams side. I do remember her saying we had an ancestor,
Hartwell Jackson, that the family descended from. She was a lovely lady,
as most genealogists are, and quite willing to share her findings. If anyone
has family descending from Hartwell Jackson, I am sure the Adams family
will be in it also, as she said the family was quite old in the reigon.
Again many thanks, Jane K.
